Align Trex 700E Night Flying Video

Video of my buddy Chris flying his Align Trex 700E at my former field. I fly 3D planes at night and he thought it was so awesome that he outfitted his 700 as his first night flyer. Chris thanks me and curses me everyday for getting him into night flying. Here is the YouTube video.

Align Trex 700E Night Flying by Chris Corbitt (3 min 54 sec)

wow, very nice. Do you mind tell me what night blades and accessories for this setup. I really want to have mine like that one day, flying at night time.

The blades he got from Align. They have the lights built into them. The lights on the tail and canopy are just the led strips from Hobby Parts that you solder together.

thnaks. I think align discontinued night blades. I may find other night blades but they are expensive.

Thanks. I wish I could fly my heli's this well but I am still in the learning phase. Got the hover down just working on forward flight. My friend Chris is a great heli pilot. He has been doing for the better part of 20 years.

Ahh yes helis do take quite a while to master. Personally I've only flown an mCPX for 3D flying, that was pretty fun and I'd love to go bigger but it's too expensive right now.

I hear ya, especially with Heli's. I thought planes were bad but they have nothing on Heli's. I have an mcpx for inside the house and a blade 450 3d for outside. It is slow going but I am learning.

They are Edge CF night blades from Horizon Hobby. That is what he told me. They are not from Align like I earlier stated. That was my mistake.

I'm surprised no one reported it as an UFO , we had to stop our night flying because of that.

Any how looks good , nice flying too.
